|Zoe Gown:Weird how all the models look like her!|
You can imagine my surprise when I clicked the link to Bloomingdales.com to check out the Look Book for Rachel Zoe’s new spring 2012 Natural Wonder collection.
It was ingenious.
The Look Book showcased nymph-esque models standing in a whimsical forest modeling pieces from the collection but, what was wondrous, is that the looks were animated.
A muse dips her hand in a stream and caresses the water while a soft breeze blows the ruffles on her blouse and tendrils of her hair. Mist envelopes a model as she leans against a rock wall in a super chic off-the-should zebra print top and matching slouchy pants. Women in every frame of the story land depiction are in motion.
I know it sounds a bit corny, but it was cool. Check it out for yourself: http://www1.bloomingdales.com/fashion-index/rachel-zoe-lookbook.jsp?cm_mmc=EML-_-FOB-_-YES_32212_RachelZoe-_-ViewTheLookbook_LB&EMAIL_ID=14005745505#/Homepage
According to Bloomingdales.com, Zoe’s collection Natural Wonder proves natural beauty is the most striking form of art. Rachel Zoe’s creations paint a picture of true glamor. The überstylists’s latest looks channel your inner goddess – celebrating your untamed femininity and passion for luxury – for an infusion of everyday brilliance.
Ok, the description is a little over the top but I dig the collection. As I have posted before, it is a bit of the same of what Zoe produced last year with her first year collections: tie blouses, maxi dresses and flair pants. However, there is certainly a fresh breeze blowing with some new flair for spring.
I am in love with Zoe’s poppy colored off-the-shoulder gown made of silk and rayon which retails for $795. Also, the pairing of an asymmetric ruffle print dress, $395, with a sequined cardigan, $450, is aesthetically pleasing to my senses. Vibrant hues like royal blue – including the aforementioned zebra print – and crimson lend the collection that little pop of color which it is desperately lacking.
Yet, being a monochromatic girl myself, I think the Natural Wonder collection is magnificently succinct and certainly represents a menagerie of colors and styles that are on trend for this spring.
Isn’t it just wonderful?
